Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. Toronto is located in Southern Ontario on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. With over 2.5 million residents, it is the fifth most populous municipality in North America.

As Canada's economic capital, Toronto is considered a global city and is one of the top financial centres in the world. Toronto's leading economic sectors include finance, business services, telecommunications, aerospace, transportation, media, arts, film, television production, publishing, software production, medical research, education, tourism and sports industries.The Toronto Stock Exchange, the world's seventh largest, is headquartered in the city, along with most of Canada's corporations. They also have an NHL hockey team, called the Toronto Maple Leafs.


Toronto's population is cosmopolitan and international, reflecting its role as an important destination for immigrants to Canada.
